A near-future financial thriller that plays like ROLLOVER if remade by Ron Paul, THE CRASH wastes a decent cast in a lecture disguised as a movie that passive-aggressively advocates the abolishing of the Federal Reserve.

Race and gender are not physical attributes. They are social constructions. The movie portrays the district attorney of L.A., struggling to salvage his public image among black voters via finding an African American whom he can reward publicly. He considers a certain "black" firefighter who had recently performed his job heroically, but someone mentions that the firefighter is actually Iraqi. The D.A. responds, "He's Iraqi? Well, he looks black." This scene illustrates clearly that racial categories are created and employed by people, although these categories often say little about a person's actual cultural or national heritage. In another scene, a detective refers to his lover as Mexican. She responds, "My father's from Puerto Rico, my mother's from El Salvador. Neither one of those is Mexico."
Crashalso beautifully illustrates how rigid gender roles can hinder connection between people. The traditionally male roles of "provider" and "protector" are especially examined. In one scene, a black film director named Cameron is pulled over by a racist police officer named John Ryan. Cameron's wife is with him, and soon begins antagonizing the officer and refusing to comply, even at Cameron's repeated request. So they are checked for weapons. When Cameron responds without aggression as John frisks his wife in a sexually suggestive way, she perceives him as failing to protect her. She later accuses him of allowing her humiliation so the people he works with wouldn't "read about [him in the paper] . . . and realize that . . . he's actually black". In a scene at the film studio where Cameron directs, this does seem to be a fear of his, as he quietly agrees to make a scene more racially stereotypical. So perhaps fear of job loss did factor into his failure in his protector role. Howe...
Crashshows that we should reanalyze the distinctions between "male" traits, such as decisiveness and aggression, and "female" traits, like submissiveness, non-aggression, and intuition. The movie portrays a Persian American shop owner who buys a handgun to protect his wife and his daughter, Dorri. Dori's intuition gives her a bad feeling about this. Since her father has a limited grasp of English, she purchases a box of ammunition labeled "Blanks" for the new gun. After the family's shop is vandalized and destroyed, threatening his means of providing for his family, he pursues a locksmith whom he mistakenly holds responsible for the situation. He holds the locksmith at gun-point, demanding money for compensation. The locksmith's little girl, who is wearing an imaginary "impenetrable cloak" her father had given her, throws herself in front of the gun. The gun goes off, pointed at the girl, but she is unharmed. Tragedy has been averted because Dorri circumvented her father's wishes by...
Symbolically, the locksmith's little girl became the protector of both her father--she tells him, "I'll protect you"--and her father's assailant, who later says, "She came to protect me". This symbolism reveals more than just a reversal of gender roles. The girl's imaginary cloak is impenetrable, which indicates the best possible defense. The cloak represents faith, as it operates solely by the girl's belief in it. It also symbolizes hope, since her father could only hope that nothing would harm her in spite of her faith. Also, the men were protected by the girl's loving self-sacrifice: she threw her very self into the line of fire. Since she "protected" bothmen, the symbolic mechanisms of her protective act represent forces that shield against both our ability to destroy others and our ability to be destroyed by others. Since her protection was symbolic, not physical, the mechanisms protect against psychological/spiritual damage, not physical harm. So faith, hope, and self-sacrific...
Cameron, tired of feeling spineless, almost dies when he violently threatens a group of police officers. This reckless action ends up doing more than soothing his wounded pride, however. He can no longer pass judgment on his wife for her capacity to behave recklessly, but must forgive her, because he's discovered his own capacity to behave even more recklessly. Additionally, the common trigger for both his and his wife's recklessness--they share the predicament of living as a racial minority--shows him that he and his wife are "in this together". They must act as comrades, not enemies. So any fault or evil that we notice in another is likely to lead us to our common ground, but only if we are willing to fully face the corresponding shadows within our own nature. Facingthe darkness within also puts us on guard against its potential for harm. In the film, a white police officer repeatedly takes a stand against racism. However, in one of the last scenes, he gives a black hitchhiker a r...
Tracyon April 06, 2020: I know its been like more than 5 years this movie was released but honestly speaking this is the best movie ever and thanks for providing us with deeper and understandable information. I am currently film and tv production student, I want to became an EDITOR... THEE BEST FEMALE EDITOR. I also want to do the DOP. Our boss gave us a task of watching 50 years back movies that won Oscar.. out 50 movies I found this one interesting and I love it because the writer left me with lots of question that I had to ask myself and go to Google. Anyway I like how the writer played with my mind I mean like when i was watching the movie I felt like i know what going to happen in the end e.g "Graham will find who killed his brother and Cameron is going to end dead or in jail" unfortunately my predictions were wrong the writer just kept me on guessing which is a good thing.Like the background song damn they were matching with the scenes and I like the ending part with birdeye v...

May 06, 2015 · About 15 years ago, Paul Haggis was laughed out of one meeting after the next when he pitched "Crash" to television executives. He wrote it as a movie instead (with Bobby Moresco), but pre-production was shut down multiple times because the cast didn't include the right A-listers to justify financing.
At the end of the film images and names of all of the victims who died in the crash is revealed - I admit to weeping openly. As they alphabetically go down the list the respect paid throughout the film translated those names and faces into loved and cherished individuals.
The cast is one of the finest and consists of Sandra Bullock, Don Cheadle, Matt Dillon, Jennifer Esposito, William Fichtner, Brendan Fraser, Terrence Howard, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Thandie Newton, Ryan Phillippe, Larenz Tate, and Michael Pena. In general, actors act, and react. They act on their own, and they react to one another.
